What are the symptoms of pneumonia?
The most common symptoms of pneumonia – an infection in the lung’s air sacs – are:
Chest pain while coughing or breathing heavily
Fever and chills
Be sure to consult with a physician at Lifeline Urgent Care if you have lingering pneumonia symptoms, particularly chest pain while coughing. It is especially vital to seek prompt medical care if you are over the age of 65, have a compromised immune system, or have a young child who is experiencing pneumonia symptoms.
It’s important to note that these symptoms are shared by many other conditions. Lifeline Urgent Care’s centers are equipped with digital X-ray machines and clinical labs to swiftly identify the source of your symptoms and provide an appropriate course of treatment.
What does pneumonia treatment involve?
If your symptoms are confirmed to be pneumonia, treatment will focus on clearing the infection and preventing any complications. If bacteria is to blame for your pneumonia, a regimen of antibiotics may be recommended. In other cases, antifungal or antiviral agents and medication to reduce symptoms may be recommended.
Most cases of pneumonia are mild and can be treated at Lifeline Urgent Care. However, call 911 immediately if you have difficulty breathing, severe dizziness, confusion, severe chest pain, frequent vomiting, or bluish skin discoloration.
